SOURCE: Whirlpool LSR7133KQ0 no pumpout, rinse, or spin.

NO...the problem you are describing are the typical symptoms of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch shuts the washer off when you open the lid while the drum is spinning. This is a safety feature to prevent injury from moving parts if you decide to add a garment or stick your hands in the tub for some reason while it is in operation. On some model Whirpool's the washer WILL work initially for the wash cycle, then stop when it gets to the rinse cycle. I would recommend you check your lid switch to make it is not loose or broken. Your washer is also equipped with a lid strike (a small plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch) make sure it is not broken off or missing. This will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch.

If you require a replacement switch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, or you can go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The part number for the switch is 3949247. The lid strike (if required) is part number 358684. If you need instructions on how to replace the lid switch, you can use this link if you like:

I don't know how savvy you are, so I thought I would add the instructions just in case. I hope you find all this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Beko WMB714422 .... washing cycle stops after 5 mins of the cycle and shows 'end'. Cant get it to do a full cycle. Any ideas ?


This is most likely an issue with the motor, causing confusion to the electronics, sometimes you can replace the motor and remedy the issue but I have had a couple of occasions with Beko machines where the motor fault caused damage to the control board

Slow spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Belt
The belt may have come off or broke. If you hear the motor running but nothings moving the problem is likely the belt. This is easy to check and replace.

Door Switch
This can cause the washer to not agitate or go into the spin cycle. You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.

Motor Control Module

The motor Control Module is located inside the cabinet down near the motor. This recieves the signals from the main control module then relays this information to the motor. Check all connections sometimes a communcation problem is just a loose connection. The Motor Control Module is easy to replace. To check this further you will need to refer to your tech sheet or service manual.

Front loader maytag stop in middle cycle give error F25


Remove your service panel and look for your tech sheet inside a jacket in the inside of the service panel. An F-25 is usually a broken wire between the main control and the motor control.

LG frontloader runs thru majority cycle & towards the end it stops & flashes "LE" code. I have replaced Hall sensor.


The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error, but it is possible to separate the working from the non-working, just by following a process. The reason this particular unit has been on the injured list for so long is the first tech never followed a trouble shooting process to ensure the parts being replaced had actually failed.

I am a service technician in grants pass oregon and i had the same problem. It told me to replace the board too. I replaced the main boad, Motor control board, door switch and cleaned all the hoses and it still didnt fix it. I had 3 other service technicians look at it ( one from sears ) And nobody could figure it out.

I have an equator washer/dryer combo. It seems to have a few problems. The washer doesn't spin during the spin cycle, although it spins during the rest of the wash cycle. The pump is making a weird...


I have one of these things, too, an EZ 3612 CEE. I've replaced the pump on mine, but I am in no way an appliance technician. However, your problem seems like an electronics problem to me and the service people I've spoke to about this machine have told me that the main circuit boards in these machines fail regularly. That has yet to happen to me. I would suggest calling the equator service number. You'll be connected to some technician in India, almost certainly. But my experience with these guys has been great. They have VERY patiently talked me through a couple of different diagnostic procedures and solved some problems. Don't have the phone # just now but you can google equator appliance and get it.
